We’re selling beer, #HamOnt!

Craft beer lovers rejoice: we have OFFICIALLY opened our retail storefront at 207 Burlington St. E. in Hamilton, Ontario this past Tuesday, September 1st!! Located at the end of Hamilton’s constantly (and culturally) evolving James St. N., the store opens just in time for the Labour Day long weekend and the James Street North Supercrawl, Hamilton’s annual music and arts street fest.

Our entire lineup of beer will be available for purchase, including our flagship Rhyme & Reason XPA, Canadian Brewing Awards’ Gold Medal winner for best pale in Canada. Beer will be sold in 750mL growlers, 6-packs of bottles and kegs. New brews and tall cans coming soon.

Guests will be able to sample our beer portfolio and pick up some Collective Arts merchandise. Completing the experience is a bottle gallery featuring all of our past and current unique artist labels as well as a mural done by Nick Sweetman and Peru Dyer Jalea, AKA Peru143, of Montreal’s multi-artist collaborative, EN MASSE. A renowned Toronto-based graffiti artist, Peru has also appeared on Collective Arts series art beer labels.

Store hours will be Sundays to Wednesdays, 11:30AM – 7:30PM and Thursdays to Saturdays, 11AM – 10:30PM. We will be open for the long weekend. We repeat, we will be open for the long weekend!

Brewery tours will not start until the official brewery open house, planned for November 2015. In the meantime, Collective Arts will be debuting their brand new Series Five Labels at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto on September 24th. Stay tuned for more details on our Series Five launch party!

  1. Wondering if your coasters are available for purchase through the mail. Love your State of Mind. Jo


    • Hi Jo! They are currently only available for sale at our retail store, 207 Burlington St. E. Hamilton. We’ll be opening up an online retail store soon! Cheers.


  2. […] Chris grew up in Lima, Peru until the age of 17, where he was involved and heavily interested in 80s skateboard culture, 90s surf culture and soccer. He would often draw on his own skateboard as a child. He eventually moved to Canada to study art for several years. He’s now based in Montreal with his wife, Valerie, where he works as a freelance artist. Seems as though his family has been #blessed by the art gods – his brother, Peru, is also a well-known Toronto street artist who has appeared on our labels and was also one of the artists who did a mural for our new retail store.

  3. I’m curious to know if the labels are available for sale both past and present.



    • Hi Andrew. Past labels are not for sale, but if you’re in the Hamilton, ON area, you can check out all of our label series in the gallery at our store, 207 Burlington St. E. Otherwise, our current series (Series Five) are available in LCBO and Beer Store locations, as well as bars and restaurants across Ontario. Cheers!


  4. You guys don’t by chance sell empty growlers? 🙂
